The Living Orchestra

Saturday 14 September

Time: 2:30pm to 4:30pm - Doors open every 10 minutes
Ticket Price: This event is FREE - there is no need to reserve your ticket in advance for this event.  Simply turn up and enjoy!

The Living Orchestra is a 2-hour playathon by 35 members of Orchestra of the Swan OOTS set in-the-round, with doors opening every 10 minutes for visitors to come and go at their leisure.

An area of informal seating with 15 unique deckchairs will be created by Barbara Fidoe, an Escape Arts professional textile artist working with 2 community groups (Clopton & Stratford Escape) with 4 half-day workshop sessions each in the 3 months leading up to the festival.


This will include a selection of well-known favourites and recognisable tunes with the odd curve ball thrown in to keep you on your toes!  A great opportunity to hear a professional orchestra having a load of fun without the usual formal setting of a concert hall.
